Tiffany Windows

During class today, Patrick had discussed Tiffany glass being close to home in some structures around Greensboro.  Here is an example of a Tiffany glass window that can be found at the original First Presbyterian Church. 

"According to the sign, posted beside the window, "the theme for this beautiful Tiffany-style window comes from the Gospel verse, 'Let the little children come unto me... for such is the kingdom of heaven.' It was sponsored by members of the Scales family in memory of their mother Effie and father Junius, who was a prominent 19th-century Greensboro attorney and state legislator."  Today, the window is housed on the property of the original First Presbyterian Church which is now part of the Greensboro Historical Museum."
